Bella Hadid Breaks Her Silence on Israel-Hamas War, Reveals Her Family Has Received Death Threats

Bella Hadid, for the first time, is speaking out about the Israel-Hamas War that occurred earlier this month on October 7th, which has resulted in the deaths of nearly 10,000 individuals and caused numerous injuries.

In a recent social media post, the model, who is Palestinian herself, expressed her opinion on the attack by the militant group Hamas on Israel and the ongoing bombings in Gaza.

Hadid shared a video of a Palestinian singer, Nehamsis, who was recently dropped from her record label for being pro-Palestine. On Thursday, the supermodel also posted a statement on her Instagram account about feeling threatened while grieving the deaths of conflict victims.

“Forgive me for my silence. I have yet to find the ideal words for this deeply intricate and horrific past two weeks, weeks that have turned the world’s attention back towards a situation that has been taking innocent lives and affecting families for decades,” Hadid began her statement. “I have much to say, but for today, I will keep it short.”

In the statement, the Palestinian supermodel revealed that her family receives hundreds of death threats every day.

“I’ve been sent hundreds of death threats daily, my phone number has been leaked, and my family has felt to be in danger,” Hadid wrote. “But I cannot be silenced any longer. Fear is not an option. The people and children of Palestine, especially in Gaza, cannot afford our silence. We are not brave – they are.”

Bella Hadid also expressed her support for all Palestinian mothers who have lost children as a result of the Gaza airstrikes.

“My heart is bleeding with pain from the trauma I am seeing unfold, as well as the generational trauma of my Palestinian blood,” the model continued. “Seeing the aftermath from the airstrikes in Gaza, I mourn with all the mothers who have lost children and the children who cry alone, all the lost fathers, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunties, friends that will never again walk this earth.”

Hadid also expressed condolences to Israeli families who had lost loved ones in Hamas attacks and condemned all attacks on civilians.

“I mourn for the Israeli families that have been dealing with the pain and aftermath of Oct. 7,” she wrote. “Regardless of the history of the land, I condemn the terrorist attacks on any civilians, anywhere. Harming women and children and inflicting terror does not and should not do any good for the Free Palestine movement. I believe deep in my heart that no child, no people anywhere, should be taken away from their family, either temporarily or indefinitely. That goes for Israeli and Palestinian people alike.”

The supermodel went on to describe what it’s like to be Palestinian in today’s social climate.

“It’s important to understand the hardship of what it is to be Palestinian, in a world that sees us as nothing more than terrorists resisting peace,” she shared. “It is harmful, it is shameful, and it’s categorically untrue.”

“We must all stand together in defending humanity and compassion – and demanding that our leaders do the same. All religions are peace – it is governments that are corrupt, and intertwining the two makes for the greatest sin of all,” Hadid wrote. “We are one, and God has created all equal. All bloodshed, tears, and bodies should be mourned with the same respect. There is an urgent humanitarian crisis in Gaza that must be attended to. Families need access to water and food. Hospitals need fuel to power generators, tend to the wounded, and keep people alive.”

“Wars have laws – and they must be upheld, no matter what. We need to keep pressure on our leaders, wherever we are, not to forget the urgent needs of the people of Gaza, and to ensure that innocent Palestinian civilians are not the forgotten casualties of this war,” she finished. “I stand with humanity, knowing that peace and safety belong to us all.”

Hadid’s remarks come several weeks after Hamas’ initial attack, which killed hundreds and brought the country to war. Authorities now estimate that over 1,400 Israelis and 7,000 Palestinians have died.

Hadid is a Palestinian; her father is a Palestinian real estate developer named Mohamed Hadid. Anwar and Gigi Hadid, Bella’s siblings, have both spoken out strongly about the conflict.

The state of Israel’s social media pages attacked Gigi after she shared pro-Palestinian posts on her Instagram accounts, labeling her antisemitic.

“Have you been sleeping the past week?” the state media account wrote in an Instagram Story post, tagging the model. “Or are you just fine turning a blind eye to Jewish babies being butchered in their homes? Your silence has been very clear about where you stand. We see you.”

The post from Gigi that the government was apparently criticizing read: “The most recent post on her Instagram Story read, “There is nothing Jewish about the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians. Condemning the Israeli government is not antisemitic and supporting Palestinians is not supporting Hamas.”
